Since i heard Claptons "from the cradle" cd and then found out that Jerry Portnoy was the harpplayer on that cd I just had to buy home run hitter. Since that day not a day without portnoy (nearly). If you enjoy Rick Estrin in Little Charlie and the Nightcats you will love Jerry Portnoy`s home run hitter.

When I first heard this album, I was floored. I thought that the harmonica mastery behind it was some of the best I've heard in the past decade. I mean Jerry Portnoy is definitely one of the best in the business. The singer that Jerry uses on some of the tracks is also an amazing talent. The tracks that particularly stand out as masterpieces are Black Tear Drops, Home Run Hitter, Misty, and Poison Kisses. However, all of the tracks hold their own as great blues songs. Not only does Portnoy prove his talent as a harmonica player but also as a songwriter. The lyrics from Charge It are a notable exam... I cannot recommend it enough.

Excellent musician but not the style of playing I was looking for. It has more of a "big band" ring to it instead of a bluesy sound, just my opinion of course!

After 6 years with the Muddy Waters Band I expected a CD in that same vein, Delta Blues, similar to what other former Muddy Water's musicians such as Bob Margolin, Willie Smith and Pinetop Perkins to name a few have produced. This CD shows potential on 2 or possibly 3 of the 15 songs. Otherwise, it seems to start but not run, percolate but never boil, and strikes out rather than hits a home run. I think that the song "Shoulda Coulda Woulda" more aptly describes this disk and should have been its title. if you like blues harp, I would recommend that you try RJ MISCHO instead.
